July 16, 2019 12:42:26

Digital technologies are transforming entire industries, and the field of life sciences is no exception. Health wearables that help us monitor vital signs at home; DNA and genome sequencing that have opened the way to precision medicine; and the increased accessibility to medical data made possible by the cloud are just a few of the developments disrupting the biotech, pharmaceutical and health care sectors. You can hear more about these, together with news about other trends and developments in the life sciences space, at the upcoming FWD Pharma Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Set for August 6-8, 2019, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Philadelphia City Center, this is a forward-thinking forum aimed at catalyzing the adoption of digital information technologies in biosciences. Expect thought-provoking addresses, panel discussions and workshops with case studies that will fire up your enthusiasm and spark ideas, as well as tips to get you thinking outside the box. The FWD Pharma Conference also promises to be a hotbed of networking opportunity.
